    Can some explain or translate these words:

    привет,

    Can some explain or translate these words:
    Заранее большое спасибо


    Ты чего такой смурной? - решил разрядить обстановку Чистяков.

    Хлюпали чифирно-чёрный чай, что перекипятили на самодельном мангале.
    Кому - нары, кому - Канары.

    мангал (жаровня) = brazier

    чифирь = very strong tea

    смурной = sombre, gloomy (ср. "пасмурный")
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    chargrill - мангал
    чифирь - is not just a very strong tea. It has some narcotic effects. Its origins are from prisons and prison camps. It is prepared by decoction of large quantities of tea in relatively small volume of water.
    In the proces of decoction a guanine (гуанин) (C5H5N5O) is released (an alcaloid that kills the nerve cells).
    It causes a state that resembles an alcoholic intoxication but I don't advise anyone to drink it for it much more derimental than alcohol.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Ты прав, но просто многие часто назвают чифирем просто очень крепкий чай
